As usual, Dumbledore is right. I need a pensieve.
In lieu of that, I did a brain dump yesterday.
It was 2 pages.
To say I have a “monkey mind” (such a meditation thing, but it makes so much sense) is the understatement of the year.
There is always, always something going through my head. I think this is one of the fundamental differences between me and my spouse, actually – he can turn the thoughts off. He can, as my mom always used to say, “blob”. It’s that innate ability to step away that I lack.
But if I had a Pensieve? I could siphon off those extra thoughts, save them for later, and then come back to them when I have time.
I guess the brain dump document will have to suffice for now.
In unrelated news, they’re forecasting a rain / snow mix today. Sigh. Gotta love spring in the upper midwest! I knew it would happen, I guess, but I had my hopes up that, well, we’d be spared this year. Oh, well – it’ll come eventually, right?
